The brilliant Bloodborne is getting a new lease of life this week when it arrives as a PlayStation Plus freebie and, to celebrate, fans are planning to flock back to the game to populate its multiplayer features.
Return to Yharnam is happening again! Begins next Saturday, the 10th! It's a coordinated annual event to surge the game with activity. A perfect time to revisit Bloodborne. This time it will be aided by lots of newcomers from March's free PS+ download. RT to get the word out! pic.twitter.com/W0QpIvLoTI— illusorywall / bucky (@illusorywall) March 3, 2018
How can you join in? Existing fans are being encouraged to create a new character, play through the game and engage in co-op as much as possible.
Specifically, players are asked to defeat a couple of other hunters in each area in order to spawn Bell Maidens. Also, to leave a teasing message by as many lamps as possible: "You're in the know, right?"
New to Bloodborne? You'll simply benefit from other fans being online, should you wish to call in another player to help tackle one of the game's trickier sections.
"Imaginative, powerful and coherent, Bloodborne is genius," Rich Stanton wrote in our Bloodborne review. Worth a try, then.
